[tor-talk] endless list of scrubbed circuits

Edit:  I uninstalled / reinstalled Vidalia bundle (once more).  This 
time I del all files in (Vista) C:\users\<user name>\App Data\Roaming\Tor\

Now as soon as start Tor & enable Tor button 1.3.2, pages load fairly 

I don't think it should be necessary to install / uninstall / reinstall 
3 times to get it to work.  I always shut all other prgms before 
installing.  Though never have problems installing prgms w/ Kaspersky IS 
2011 running (it notifies whether it trusts the prgm or not), I shut it 
down & disconn. from web.

After doing all the above, seems to finally work.  Maybe this will help
